A Manual for Cœnobitic Monastics: A Synopsis of the Most Basic Pursuits of a Monastic in Obedience, According to the Teaching of Our Spiritual Father and Elder, Metropolitan Cyprian of Oropos and Fili; For the Glory of God and the Benefit of Obedience-Loving Souls

   
Translated by Archbishop Chrysostomos of Etna

“Do not forget, Cœnobitic Monastic, that you entered the monastery——not that you might judge, but to be judged;—not that you might lead, but to be led;—not that you should teach, but to be taught;—not that you might exercise authority, but to be placed under authority;—not that you might counsel, but to be counselled.”
—“The Three Steadfast Foundations of Monastic Life”
